NAME

afppasswd - netatalk password maintenance utility

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

afppasswd [-acfn] [-p passwd file] [-u minimum uid]

DESCRIPTION

afppasswd allows the maintenance of afppasswd files created by netatalk for use by the uams_randnum.so UAM (providing the "Randnum exchange" and "2-Way Randnum exchange" User Authentication Modules).

afppasswd can either be called by root with parameters, or can be called by local system users with no parameters to change their AFP passwords.

Note

With this utility you can only change the passwords used by two specific UAMs. As they provide only weak password encryption, the use of the "Randnum exchange" and "2-Way Randnum exchange" UAMs is deprecated unless one has to support very old AFP clients, that can not deal with the more secure "DHCAST128" and "DHX2" UAM instead. Please compare with the Authentication chapter inside Netatalks documentation.

EXAMPLE

Local user changing their own password:

example% afppasswd
Enter NEW AFP password: (hidden)
Enter NEW AFP password again: (hidden)
afppasswd: updated password.

OPTIONS

-a

Add a new user to the afppasswd file.

-c

Create and/or initialize afppasswd file or specific user.

-f

Force the current action.

-p path

Path to afppasswd file.

-n

If cracklib support is built into netatalk this option will cause cracklib checking to be disabled, if the superuser does not want to have the password run against the cracklib dictionary.

-u minimum uid

This is the minimum user id (uid) that afppasswd will use when creating users.
